In those close ups your Sunny's cere seems to be quite purplish, so my guess is he is a boy.
I think he is a sky blue single factor golden face double factor dominant pied budgie.

Pictures are blurry, but he does look to be a boy to me as well. I also agree with aluz about his mutation

I don't consider it rare, it can be hard to find a budgie with that colour combination but it's not rare.

You said sometimes there are fights between Sunny and your other budgies, if you are wanting to breed, please to do it safely and not in a colony setting. Separate each pair you wish to breed into their own cages with no other bird to meddle with their business.
I see the area around your Sunny's eye has sustained some type of injury, possibly from another budgie's pecking at him.

Oh yes he had a fight yesterday and I've separated the two.. Also I am not wanting sunny to be in a breeding session right now.. So i prefer keeping him with other budgies at times and providing him medical care as well... Thankyou.. :-)

It's good to know you took fast action, prevented the fight from escalating and separated the budgies.

Your Sunny's minor injury will surely heal up well.

He is not a single variety but a combination. He has sky blue body colour with single factor golden face and double factor dominant pied as the two varieties. Each of these is common on its own and looks very lovely when put together.
